We had always planned to provide all the information we could about our research into the Ramey Memo. Our original hope was that we would be able to clarify the text and then provide the methodology and the scans to those interested in verifying our work. We had hoped to be able to resolve this one bit of UFO history and believed that with today’s technology, we would be successful.
Unfortunately, we weren’t as successful as we had hoped. While the new scans were an improvement over those made in the past, they did not result in the clarity we had hoped. Thinking of the success of the Roswell Slides Research Group in reading the placard revealed in the Not Roswell Slides fiasco, we opened the research doors to others. The whole group of scans, using various techniques, lighting and filters came to something like 27 gigabytes… maybe not overly large in the world today, but large enough to make sharing the scans over the Internet something of a problem.
Isaac Koi offered to help, and with the assistance of Lance Moody who used his personal accounts, Koi was able to acquire and put the scans on the Internet. For those interested in this, they can be found here:
